I have yet another sweet potato based recipe for you! I’m on a real sweet potato and egg kick at the moment. I just can’t get enough of the naturally sweet orange flesh and golden yolked eggs from my local farm shop. I’ve found that together they make a perfectly satisfying breakfast and I wanted to experiment with that more!
On Saturday morning I was looking in the fridge trying to decide what to make for breakfast. I had sweet potato, eggs, and some of the creamy full fat coconut milk leftover from the curry I made the night before . I came up with this…
Sweet Potato & Coconut Breakfast Bake (serves 1, dairy free, grain free)
- 1 medium sweet potato
- 2 large eggs
- 50mls (just under 1/4 cup) of full fat coconut milk – plus more for pouring
- 1/2 tsp of vanilla extract
- 1-2 tbsp of coconut sugar / natural caster sugar (depending on how much of a sweet tooth you have!)
Pre heat the oven to 200c. Bake the sweet potato in the microwave until tender. Allow to cool for a few minutes then remove the skin and chop into pieces. Grease a small oven proof dish with coconut or spray oil and add the chopped sweet potato. In a separate bowl whisk together the remaining ingredients and pour over the sweet potatoes. Bake for 20 minutes until the egg and coconut mixture has puffed up and become firm. Sprinkle with coconut sugar 5 minutes before removing from the oven if you want a caramel like crispy topping.
I transferred mine from the baking dish and poured over some more full fat coconut milk..
This tastes like vanilla scented french toast with a hint of coconut flavour. It is like having dessert for breakfast!
This has no refined sugar and is grain and dairy free. It contains good carbs from the sweet potatoes, protein and fat from the eggs and an extra serving of fats from the coconut milk. All healthy foods brought together in a perfectly tasty package.
It would also be good drizzled with maple syrup, nut butter or dairy cream. This really did make the perfect lazy Saturday morning breakfast!
